Guam Fried Rice Recipe
This Guamanian fried rice gains its rich flavor from bacon or SPAM®. Throw in any other seasonal vegetables you may have on hand to stretch this dish to serve more people.
This is EXCELLENT! My new favorite fried rice recipe. I was skeptical because there aren't any "seasoniongs" (salt/pepper/etc.) but I resisted & didn't add any. Delicious! I guess the Spam & diced vegetables plus the soy sauce did the trick. I used 3c brown rice, as that's all I had already cooked. As per other reviewers, I added 3c cole slaw mix & diced scrambled egg at the end. I LOVE this rice! Did I say you should try it? Because you should!! And to think yesterday was the first time I'd heard of "Guam" fried rice or "Lumpias" (filling already done, just need to roll them now.) I couldn't cook at all if not for Allrecipes, it seems! I don't trust anything without a bunch of reviews & hints, and I love it! And I'd need a whole 'nuther page to regale Chef John...A big THANKS to this submitter and all the rest of this network - Hooray for home cooked meals!!
Spicy gochujang melds with caramelized corned beef and kimchi to make Chef John's tear-jerkingly flavorful, chewy, crusty kimchi fried rice.
It is also very common to use frozen mixed vegetables. Top with several dashes of Tabasco and a fried egg.
Made the recipe as written except we only used 3/4 lb of bacon (since it's hard to find actual full pound packages of bacon anymore) and 5 cups of rice. Still, while the flavor was OK, this is by far the oiliest fried rice I've ever had. Next time I'll probably drain the bacon grease (!) and use a bit of canola or peanut oil instead.
The way your fried rice turns out really depends on what kind of rice you are using. I try to stay away from the long grain or Jasmine rice when making this. I also like using left overs such has ham after the holidays.
Luv the Spam! Especially if fried to crispiness on the outside.
I am going to rate this a 5 because this is "allrecipies" not "foodsnobrecipes"! This website can spark inspiration for "all". Everyone knows how hard it is to come by fresh ingriedients on Guam, it is VERY popular in the Hawaiian islands where I lived, BRAVO to them for using what they have made available to them. In these tough times I'm sure they are not the only ones relying on economic means... if it were pet food the FDA wouldnt allow it on the market. If this doesn't suit you by all means substitute some nice homemade Char siu like I do with leftovers otherwise give it a rest... please!
This was quite good. I used the SPAM version. I had to add maybe 2 tsps of oil to get a reasonable amount of "grease" to get the rice coated. You could add a million things to this, but as is, it is quite tasty. Kids liked it also.
